Took a bit of digging but here you go (Check out the writing on the tyres BTW!)

https://www.classic-trader.com/at/automobile/inser...















Here's the build blog from the customizers, Koenigseder, and it looks like they took a written off red Cerbera V8, grafted on a purple replacement nose and then rebuild the whole thing (notice the £5,800 written on the back of the windscreen of the donor car)

http://www.koenigseder.at/tuning/projects/index/id...



and here's the history behind the car from that TVR Blog (not sure if I agree with them though from seeing the above...) (link below via WaybackMachine as the original website is off line)...

"I already introduced this TVR Cerbera as a former RHD example that has been converted in England to the Left Hand Drive specification to suit perfectly an European owner. Howeveer it was strange that the car (which had been totally restored as you can see in the images of the previous article) had totally a new shape.

Now finally I got the answer: this TVR enthusiast, infact, went further! He took the car to Austrian customizer Konigseder of kremsmünster (not so far afay from Salisburg) to respray the body with a new body kit.

As you can see, the car has a new front bumper, larger fenders and new rear bumber with central double exhaust. Also new are wheels and brake system: there are large drilled discs with Brembo calipers.

This customized TVR Cerbera LHD (see the Register of TVR Cerbera with Left and Drive) has been repainted with an original and interesting new double color: raspberry and black for the greenhouse and rear boot lid.

As I always said, I dont agree in modifying the original features of a TVR (starting from changing the engine from a gorgeous AJP8 or SP6 to a GM unit) because this means to lower her value (unless this kind of operation comes from the factory itself!). I anyway have to be sincere: if we forget for a moment that this was a great TVR Cerbera MK1 RHD, I can assume this customized Cerbera is at least interesting."

and just because I found it too, here's a list of all the left hand drive converted Cerbera's from the same website

The kit is very expensive for what you get as the kit is exclusive to them but it consists of front valence,rear bumper and four arch extensions.
I managed to get a deal out of them but the kit retails at 3800 euros if I recall

Haven't received it yet, should be this week but the plan is to get her back on the road as she is with all the underside tarted up and engine all tuned and ready and two years time transform her a little bit to suit my style which may offend a few purists

Pleasure guys - hope the information helps (and I might try and source the donor car at some point just to satisfy my OCD wink )

Would be interested to see pics of the rear bumper when it arrives. My basket case of a refurb/restoration/rebuild needs significant work to the rear bumper. This might actually be an easier option and I do like the central exhaust and as I also have no exhaust parts there's nowt to lose there either :-)

Rudders, you can buy the parts separately and I can't wait to see them too as I've been waiting a while and their English isn't great so there are a few mixed messages flying around

I had just about worked out that you could buy them separate. ... but then my lack of German and the relatively poor info available on their site left ne at a bit of a no man's land.

I love the subtleness of the splitter on this car, it's unlike any other I have seen (and I've been trying to find a decent one for ages).

I did hear a rumour that someone had adapted a Seat Leon Cupra splitter to fit a Cerb, I wonder if this is it?

Does anyone know where the splitter was sourced from?
Hi mate, thanks. This is my car.

As I said before I like really subtle mods. For me, it's a game of slightly changing something but to most people they would never know.

Yes, this is a Gen 2 Seat Leon Cupra R (genuine) splitter.

Was a bit of work to get it to fit right but nothing major.

Self tapping screws and painted the same colour as the car.

Have pics of the measuring, cutting and fitting somewhere.

Wow, totally agree with the comments, I didn't even see it until I read the comments and then went back to the photo's.
Looks perfect to me.
My only question would be regarding the fixing method.
I recently thought I had damaged one of my winglets in my Tuscan. Knowing how iffy the handling is at around 120 (without the wings), I was really worried about what might happen it the damaged one ripped off at speed.
There is a lot of force generated at those speeds and self tappets sound a little questionable.
Looks absolutely excellent though.

Do you have closeup pics of how you did the wing mirrors ?.
Only have one pic from the bodyshop when they did the work, which probably isnt much help as it doesnt show in the interiors of the housing. I gave them a selection of LEDs I found that could do a job, and they chose the gel type flexible strip as this would follow the contour of the mirror and was only a few mil deep so wouldn't interfere with the mirror and motors, as they're really quite small mirrors!

They cut the back of the mirror slightly smaller than the full width of the strip, so had something in the housing to slap some mastic/silicon onto to keep them in place and stop water ingress. There is JUST enough curve in the mirror and with the correct positioning, to be able to pass the MOT test of seeing the repeater from the rear angle.....and I mean just!

The guys that did the work were C&S Coachworks in Liphook, same little estate as APM live on, Chris is the main man if anyone wants to know more as Im sure he will remember the car!

Hi djstevec,
that looks superb, perfect job.I know that you have done the hard job of finding the right one but would you mind me asking where i can get the LED gel type flexible strip ? You can PM me if you prefer
Your help is much appreciated.
